Side by side sites, host was very good on assigning you site as long as there was a space open did not place a camper nest to you. Is a quiet campground locater north of town. Spent two days at campground. Need to pay by check or cash does not take credit or debt card. Has a large area for family reunions cabins available. Would stay there again. - Roger from boise

Rate shown is monthly and electricity was added to this. The location is great if you want to be close to town (which is why we chose it)...and it's nice to be on the river. The sites are all gravel and extremely tight, even sharing the water line. There is no office, just one of the full time residents that checks you in. Those folks are nice, but the owner is quite a difficult person. The park is just minimally maintained. Bring cash or check, as they don't take credit cards. - silverqueen

No office, but a golf cart mobile check-in. As discussed by phone, cash or check only.
Friendly guy on duty escorted us to our small site (side-by-side). We had to share one picnic table with one neighbor and one sewer connection with the other. I hate side-by-side sites with strangers, especially when door-to-door distance is about 15 ft.
Only ten sites are available at the actual river side, rest of the sites are situated on one big gravel 'parking lot', with trees providing some shade.
No restrooms and showers.
Park is nearby highway, but quit day and night and situated along a nice fast flowing (at this time anyway) stream.
Wi-Fi excellent, strong signal and fast.
We found the price of $ 42 high, compared to other camp grounds in Montrose with more and better amenities. - Bluesbirdy

My husband and I stayed here 5 nights. We chose Montrose because we were on our way to Durango. This Koa is one of the cleanest we've been to! We got 32 stations on our tv. The grass and all the trees were great especially if you have dogs! The host and workers are great! Bathrooms pool and laundry room are exceptional. Downtown is very close to the park. Mi Mexico restaurant was Great and nearby. A lot of shopping here. Telluride is over an hour away. A must see! - Shan Rose

Very clean & tidy park; the grass between sites was well-tended (we saw perhaps one dandelion!) and well-irrigated. Lots of shade trees, which we appreciated. Bathrooms somewhat older, but very clean and nice. We felt we had a good amount of space in our site, both lengthwise and side-to-side, and were able to enjoy spending some time outside at our picnic table. (We often don't in most private campgrounds.) Staff were helpful for the most part and always in sight. Yes, there are a lot of seasonals, but most of them are in a separate part of the campground from those of us staying temporarily. The campground was nearly full when we were there, unusual for this late in the season, but was nice & quiet. Great base camp for the Black Canyon and other sights nearby. - PokyRVer

Based on the prior reviews and overall ratings, we were excited to stay here. We didn't see what the hype is all about, unfortunately. We did like being very close to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison NP, which was our main reason for being in Montrose. We stayed in Ouray a few years ago and had an entirely different (better) experience.
*In town, 20 min from NP
*Grass, nice spot, easy in and out
*Quick check in
*Talked to the manager, Debbie at one point about a rude/difficult full timer and she was understanding and apologetic
*Not a great part of town, we were yelled at rudely when our nav app "Waze" sent us down the wrong street behind the KOA, and we actually felt unsafe
*About 50% of the park are residents; left early on weekdays, not very friendly, and didn't seem to have a lot of pride in their spots
*No dog run at all - need it!
*Lots of mosquitos = lots of bites, and of course realized it the next day after lots of itching
*No fire rings
*Hot tub was small, above ground. Was hoping for a nice, big, in-ground jacuzzi, so we didn't use it, but had hoped to. - Dank

If you are coming to this part of Colorado to get away from the heat...don't. it was near 90 every day we were there. We were actually closer to Montrose than Ridgeway, but that is not the point. The park is clean and neat but not dog friendly. Your dog can't go here, it can't go there and the dog walks are mostly weeds with goat heads or just rock. If there is green grass, it can't go there. I only noticed two kids but I think they were visitors to the RVers, because I didn't see them again. The WI-FI is spotty and super slow. They promised it would be fixed next week. A lot of things will be "fixed next week" as new owners have taken over. I didn't like the fact that you are face to face with another RV pulled in the opposite way and you have to share grass. This is a big rig type of park as there were only three of us "little guys" (travel trailers). Do not get in the first two rows next to the highway. It is a busy road. Spots 1-10 or 11-20 are preferred (back two rows). It can be a dusty park, too. It gets windy there! - scouter

This RV park was right off the highway, and just a gravel parking lot; HOWEVER, was a superb spot to stay for a few days. The staff was super friendly from reservation to checkout; awesome customer service. They take great care in the landscaping (grass on each site, cut regularly), and there were planted flowers everywhere, such a nice cozy place. The bathrooms were sparkling clean, even cleaner than I kept my bricks and sticks home! The laundry room was also sparkling. We would definitely stay again. - Mary Scott

This is our second time at this park. We did a week last year and did a month this year. While we were there, the park was only about 25% full. This was very nice as we had a lot of space to spread out. The sites share a grassy area that you share with a neighbor when you have a neighbor. This is fine but if both of you have dogs, it may cause an issue. They kept the grounds mowed and well watered and groomed. We had several windy days and every evening the hosts would come out and pick up all the broken branches. While we were there new owners took over the park. They updated the office and out buildings with new paint. Although we thought the wifi worked pretty good, they were adding new towers the day we left. Hopefully they add a dog park and offer some social activities. Wife said the showers and bathrooms were immaculate and water pressure and temp was good. Her only complaint is that the washers and dryers were not great. And she got pretty upset when one of the camp hosts took up all of the machines one morning. Roads and sites are very easy to navigate with a big rig. - akeller156

This CG is now a Jellystone Park campground. Clean facilities and well laid out. Close proximity to Montrose. The hosts went out of their way to include our children in camp activities (hay rides, nature walks, crafts, etc. Very nice people for sure. Clean laundry facilities, showers, and bathrooms. Game room was more my speed- pool tables, ping pong, shuffleboard (not a bunch of video games) kept the kids busy. The pull through sites are easy to get in and out of. Most of the trees are fairly young and will take a few years to provide large amounts of shade. Most of the sites are wide open which was ok. It seems like new ownership and they are working hard (and doing a good job) of keeping the place up. Nice clean playground with picnic areas. Unfortunately a fire ban was in effect so no campfires, but they do have community set ups for it. My only gripe was the pool water temp. I presume it was early enough in the season and they had not gotten the system up and running at full speed. Water temps were 68-69*F. Rather chilly by my standards, but the kids still put up with it. Plenty of things to see in the surrounding mountains, kept us busy for a week. Would come here again. - scottykrug

Friendly staff, clean bathrooms and showers. The pool and hot tub were also well maintained. We stayed and attended the Night Vision festival in Olathe, CO. We will stay again for next year’s festival. Rate was with AAA discount. - Bayfield Family Campers

New owners trying very hard to improve this park. From long term residents I understand that previous owners let the park deteriorate badly. We found the owner to be friendly, the sites were very large, WiFi worked, got a few local TV stations using our rig's antenna. Conveniently located for anyone who wants to see Ouray, Silverton or Telluride but doesn't not want to take their big rigs to those locations. We hope that the new owner is successful in building back the clientel who used to enjoy this convenient location. We would stay here again should we ever return to the Montrose area. - lonroberts

Were here for 8 days. Friendly hosts, had a lot of fun playing miniature golf with family. We were in a pull-thru, but the sites on either side were so close that our canopy shaded our neighbor's slide. Site was barely long enough for our 37' 5th wheel and dually tow vehicle. Some sites had more space between them, but most appeared to be almost as close together as ours. Met many nice people in park. We enjoyed the area, because there was a lot to see and do. Probably wouldn't stay here again. - Ol JB

Brought our travel trailer for a long weekend. Apparently, the park has recently changed hands, per the gentleman we spoke with, who identified himself as the new owner, having bought the park two weeks ago. Overall, we had a great stay. Our pull-through site was level and clean, with full hookups, as described. One negative with our site, in particular, was that it was completely treeless and without shade. On the other hand, it was also significantly wider than other sites, which let us set up a portable fire pit some distance from our trailer. Bathroom and showers were clean and well maintained, but are showing their age. I found the showers to be great for pressure and temperature, but they're a bit cramped and definitely too dark. The park lacks a pool or hot tub, but it does have a miniature golf course, which was a welcome diversion. I would consider staying here again should my travels take me this way. - mallthus

Nice, shady park in town within walking distance to several restaurants. Nice mini golf and large, grassy dog park. Sites somewhat close together and several on the back row near the dog park need more gravel, including our Site #17. It rained and snowed and due to lack of gravel was rather muddy right around our rig. Would stay again but would check on gravel situation at our site. - jjones5996

Like others have said, very basic, no frills rv park. Sites are uneven and leveling took some time. We were put in an area very far away from anything. After awhile it appeared all pet owners were in this are which is ok.
What irritated me most was the check in. The employee read all the rules line by line and had me sign at the bottom. Felt like I was in 3rd grade again. To make it worse, her husband drove up the next morning and handed us some rules about the speed limit again. When advised we had the briefing, he smiled and blamed the rules on the park owners who were in the park that same time. Not a problem, just demeaning.
The best part of the park wss the location. We were minutes from area attractions. Probably will not stay here again. - sfretts

This park should not be a Jellystone Park. We travel full-time all over the country and have visited many Jellystones. They tend to cost more than other places we stay, but usually the cost is justified by the fun amenities they offer. This park is just a regular, no-frills RV park that is not at all like other Jellystones. The worst part was they didn't even have a pool open until 6/24 while most parks have a pool open from Memorial Day to Labor Day at a minimum. The week we were there the temps were in the upper 90s yet no pool to cool off in. Since we travel full-time and typically stay at state parks where we are not usually able to receive packages, we always look forward to catching up on our mail and deliveries when we stay at an RV park because they typically allow you to have packages delivered. Not this one! What a disappointment to find out I could not get caught up on deliveries while staying there, especially considering the price we were paying to stay at this "no frills" park. We were there with a rally of other traveling families, and one of the families helped the manager get the laser tag guns working. We thought that since they did not have a pool or anything else for us to do, maybe they would at least get laser tag working. Then we find out they are going to charge extra to play that. Seriously? The park is already overpriced for what you get, the pool wasn't open despite the heat, and now you're going to charge extra for laser tag? No thank you! Like I said before, we've been to many Jellystone Parks, and several had laser tag, bounce pads, waterslides, splash pads, etc., and they didn't even charge extra for those amenities. It was all included in the price we paid to stay there. Well for some reason this Jellystone doesn't see the need to provide any amenities and if they do, they want you to pay extra for it. If you are looking for a park with lots of fun things for your kids to do, look somewhere else. - Love2Camp777

If you come here during times that night temps are below freezing, you must bring winter protection for THEIR spigots and pipes. They do not protect their own water spigots from freezing. If you do not have this they will turn off your water. This is an expensive park, and I really don't think customers should be required to provide winter protection for their equipment. - Judi D

This was a great place for a one-night stop. There are only 6 spaces with electric only, but all were mostly shaded, roomy, and very level. Great price for an overnight with electric, would stop there again. - pandcallen

Although this Lodge only offers 30 and 50 amp electric hookups, the power is very good...no surges, brown-outs, etc. In fact, it's so good that we parked/set up both 30 and 50 amp Motorhomes in one site (very roomy sites) and the power never fell below 118. Backin sites. I would stay here again. There's water spigots for your convenience. - Br catlady

This is a hidden gem in a town of not too many people. It is off the main highway, clean with lots of trees. I could stay here forever. The river is behind the park, and there is a pond in the middle. Laundry is a little high, but lots of washers and dryers. Only negative I can think of for this hidden gem. You just don't expect something this beautiful and serene when you pull into their driveway. Will come back to enjoy the peace again. - WSKeifer

Nice, NICE park! We stayed here 11 days and enjoyed it very much. The owners gave us their best spot (in our opinion!). Lots of large shade trees which sure were appreciated in this heat. Electrical ampage was steady at 120. Water pressure just right. Green, green grass and nice flowers and landscaping. Perfectly level site. Very nice laundry room and showers. Nice and quiet too! Its a mile off Highway 50. Located between Montrose and Delta and either of these towns has whatever you may need. We will certainly stay here again. - Arizona Nancy

We thought this was a beautiful place to camp. We have a 40' motorhome and found the side parking was easy to get into. We had to maneuver a bit in one spot (B007) that had bushes on the passenger side, but we then were able to get out both sides of the slides. We liked the privacy the bushes provided. We couldn't use our awning, but the picnic table and the grill were on the opposite side of the RV anyway. Felt like we had total privacy sitting over there. Our next spot (B16) was also a side one without the bushes and it felt a bit more exposed, but again with table on opposite side, privacy. We did sink into the ground here too. Could not get level. There is no water, except for a little spigot for some jugs or bottles. There are no showers, no dump station, so be prepared. We did have electric, which was nice. Beautiful scenery, nice easy trails, dark park, great night skies, close to Black Canyon South Rim. It is a steep road for about 3 1/2 miles to get there. - dorcol

You are inside the park, with mule deer everywhere. Campground was not level (3") and it was so close to the road we couldn't use the driver side slide outs. Electric only, no water, no dump station. They don't sell firewood and you can't collect down dead wood. - Bburgbrewer

.We camped here for 5 days while exploring the area. As with most Colorado state parks this one is top notch. Our site 113 in the Elk Ridge section was quite secluded with picnic table and fire ring, but did need some serious leveling on our part. Hard to see your neighbors. The restrooms (pay $ 1.00 showers), showers and laundry were all clean and well maintained. The location is perfect for exploring the area with Ouray only a 15 min ride away. If in the area we would stay here in a heartbeat. momdoc. - momdoc

I stayed two days in Dakota Terraces and six days in Elk Ridge, so I can make some comparisons. First, this is an overall excellent state park and both sections are nice, but in the lower area (Dakota Terrace) sites are a little closer together and the lack of a lot of trees makes it seem slightly less private. Verizon coverage there is adequate. In the higher Elk Ridge, there are a lot of trees, but most of them are less than 10-15' tall and some parts of the area are thinner, so satellite was not a problem at all. Sites seem to be a bit more spread out and more private. I chose a site that was a little more open, so I even had a view of snow-capped mountains. I also got better Verizon data at Elk Ridge--4-5 bars on my jetpack. One nice thing is that both areas have a camper services building with three washers and three dryers, which means not so much waiting in line to get laundry done. Also, both areas have paved roads and paved camping sites with most also having paved patios, which keeps things nice and clean. Hosts did a good job of patrolling sites and making sure campers followed rules. I also noticed that a lot of trees had been trimmed so as not to overhang camp sites. - judy_online
